    What happened here?

    What happened in this image? A discharge of static electricity? The lines extend onto the film rebates.

    That's what it looks like to me, I've seen similar things, some cameras are more prone to it.

    If by saying "film rebates" you mean the edges of the film outside of the image area, it could only be static. I guess it could be fungus, but seeing you are in Norway, I'm imagining cold dry air prone to static.

    Film fungus. It's like lens fungus, but for film.
    or something.
    not really, i just made that up.

    Was that a wet print, or a negative scan? either way, i'd be checking flat bits of glass for big cracks (not in the lens, lens cracks won't be so well defined)
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    I have a nice portrait of my friend's daughter, taken on a very cold January afternoon, with this same thing. Static!

    Your dog is about to go supercritical. I'd run now if I were you, and check the fit of your lead underpants.

    I'm with Polyglot. I saw this in a movie once, and what happened next was NOT pretty. That being said, though it's not the picture you may have imagined, it is one of those happy accidents that makes for a really interesting print. I've got a little Welti Weltix which displayed a light leak on some shots from a rural cemetery. The result was unexpected, but quite enthralling.

    Cheers,

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Please share?
    Just make sure you don't share with ghost-hunting nutters, they'll take any excuse to "see" ghosts in a photo. ("look, there's orbs, they're floating spirits!". "Dude, clean your lens!")

    I think you got a really special and strong image.
    The black dog looking toward the "glow" intrigues me... and it happened to appear just near the heart of the other dog...

    This is static, in the trade they are known as 'Christmas Trees'

    Much more common on movie film, rare on camera film.

    And yours is an A1 example...they are usually tiny.
